So it should come as no surprise that when it came time for the annual Kennedy Center Honors event the First Lady tested out a new, fashion-forward look: slicked back hair! Letting her Oscar de la Renta dress take center stage, Michelle brushed her hair back for a sleek, straight look. The ‘do was simple, but proved elegant next to her breathtaking gown.

As if her hair wasn’t perfect enough, the First Lady showcased fresh, glowing skin punctuated by a glossy, pink lip. To further highlight her gorgeous look, Michelle added a touch of pink blush to the apples of her cheeks and thick, voluminous lashes.
